Building a Solid Foundation for our Youth
Across the street from Homedale High School, a building is being constructed. But this isn't just an ordinary building housing an ordinary business. When you walk through our doors, you will feel loved. Our doors will be open to the youth in our community to gather with each other in a safe environment, free from judgement and full of compassion. This is a place to worship, play games, study, celebrate, play music, sing, dance and much, much more.
Our Team and Mission
We are friends, parents, teachers, business professionals, and mentors that saw a need for our youth in the community and wanted to join together to find a solution. The Rock was conceived out of our mutual desire to make connections with kids in one central location. A place where we could hold classes, mentor, teach them about God. Where we could celebrate, counsel, cry, laugh, and just be there to listen without judgement. Our goal is to do our part in making the community a better place for them, providing a solid foundation to use as a stepping stone for their bright futures.
More events to come!
We are continually striving to be involved in the community and provide opportunities for you to give in a fun way. Keep checking back!
Making A Difference
The Rock houses several different programs for our youth as well as an open area for just "hanging out". Some of these programs include:
Christian Education Class: A high school elective classroom instruction class taught by Kathy Deal
Young Life: A nondenominational youth group meeting for games, treats and worship
Bible Studies: Youth, Women, Men, Couples
And many other uses
With our organization’s mission always in mind, we strive to find new strategies for dealing with this challenge. We are always looking for caring volunteers to help keep our facility running smoothly. If you want to get involved, give us a call or drop us an email. We'd love to visit with you and have you join in our mission!
Check back for updates
We are so excited to see the building going up! It's getting easier to see what the facility looks like now there are walls! Look at the large "gym" area for gathering together for activities.. The hope is we can open it up for use in February, however, we are short of our fundraising goals and are working hard to raise funds to finish on time!
We have been lucky to secure donations to get this project off the ground. We have a Board of Directors in place, our Articles of Incorporation for our 501c(3) non-profit organization have been filed, we have the property secured and excavation completed. However, a project like this takes community support and we need your help. Any monetary gift is greatly appreciated and/or if you want to set your gift for a monthly contribution, that is okay too! As the project progresses, we will be asking for items needed to complete the project.
He's a solid rock under my feet, breathing room for my soul..
